Pulling a raisin out of a two-year-old’s nose probably wasn’t on Buddha’s path toward enlightenment, but it was one of the obstacles for author Polly Campbell. For many, stuck raisins and other real-life moments provide sometimes the only opportunity for spiritual growth in a day.
Imperfect Spirituality shows us how to integrate those every-day moments with traditional spiritual techniques to experience personal growth and greater well-being all in the course of your regular routine.
Any activity can be transformed into a spiritual practice. Don’t have a half-hour to meditate? Can't drop everything ala Elizabeth Gilbert and trek to Italy or India? Do a mini-meditation while standing in line. Working to be mindful and present? Start by brushing your teeth.
Imperfect Spirituality: we'll be discussing practical tips and dozens of examples like these, as well as anecdotes from real people who are striving to grow both spiritually and personally. Featuring fascinating research about how the mind body spirit connection really works as well as illuminating quotes and informative, easy-to-do takeaways from leading-edge academic and spiritual experts who both study, and practice, these techniques.
Popular blogger and workshop facilitator Polly Campbell, a favorite journalist for Daily Om and Psychology Today, emerges here as a fresh and important new voice in spirituality who offers a path to enlightenment for "the rest of us."
